King Oreo: “this big guy turns into an absolute goof ball.” :)

When the time came that we agreed our current cat, Tyra, could use a playmate, we thought of no other than King Oreo. So we headed to Petco and were relieved to see he was still there! (we’ve been eyeing him for about a year now) We spoke with Cathy about our interest in adopting King Oreo and she referred us to Miriam, who explained in detail his history (in and out of foster homes, once adopted and returned) and temperament. We found out why he was with KittyKind for so long. King Oreo is an independent cat who likes to call the shots. He’s not a bad cat, but he would scratch and nip if he doesn’t want attention. This apparently became a problem for his previous adopter and the reason why he kept being returned. We were warned of this but we insisted that we still wanted him. So we agreed to foster King Oreo with the intent to adopt.
Once we brought him home, King Oreo took no time to adjust to the apartment. His name fits… kind of. He definitely carries himself like royalty, especially since he walks in such a proud manner. But as soon as he hears the rattle of the laser pointer, this big guy turns into an absolute goof ball. He would chase that red dot everywhere and even run up the wall if he had to. And despite his difficult history, he has proven to be an attention seeker and an occasional lap cat with us. Since I spend the most time with him, he’s especially attached to me. He follows me around and likes to make himself comfortable right next to me. When he really wants attention, though, he’ll flop himself in front of me, regardless of what I’m doing, so I can pet his head and scratch his chin. During the day, he likes to take naps in random places (and in various positions), but when it’s time to go to bed, he will climb in with us. His favorite spot? Right above our heads.
So after a month, we decided to adopt him because he’s just so… awesome. Even though he does scratch and nip just as warned, it’s not as serious as we thought it would be. All it took was some patience and knowing when to give him his space, and King Oreo has since blossomed into a cat with a colorful character. We’re still working to get him to get along with Tyra, who is still keeping a bit of a distance from him, but she’s let King Oreo share the same space with her. They’ve lately even been able to eat snacks side by side.
We’d like to thank everyone in KittyKind, especially Miriam, for being so nice and thorough during the foster and adoption processes. When we saw how happy and grateful everyone was when we decided to adopt King Oreo, we were made doubly sure that he’s definitely a very special cat. We are so happy that he finally found his forever home with us.
